On Vijay, he said “He’s one of the finest people in the industry. I still can’t believe he’s a superstar because he never behaves like one. He is always humble and very friendly. He’s supportive and very encouraging. I feel really lucky to have Vijay and Murugadoss as a team to work with in my Tamil debut.”
Neil Nitin Mukesh, who plays the antagonist in the most anticipated film Kaththi, has talked about his role and his co-star Vijay to a leading daily. He revealed that it would not be a typical villain role and he plays an extremely polished character, a north Indian who speaks Tamil, well read and foreign-returned. He added that he would be seen fighting with Vijay using intelligence, and not physical power.
